DH67CL Random reboot

I have a DH67CL that is still under warranty. Used this board for about a year on a WHS2011 build with about 6 2TB HDD without any hiccups.


Ditched the WHS2011 and am now using it in a desktop box.



I get random reboots sometimes every 2 minutes, sometimes it will go hours without doing it. I am at my wits end.


Things I have tried replacing


Intel SSD, thought maybe this could be the issue, cloned it to a new intel SSD and RMA'd the old one

Power switch? thought maybe it was a bad power switch.. but nope, still does it on a different switch wired via new header pins

PSU, replaced it with a known good one

CPU, this was replaced with a new one when I switched over to desktop duties



Things I have not replaced



RAM, I've ran it through at least 2 passes of Memtest+

I am sorry to hear that have had issues with your motherboard model DH67CL.

I see you have replaced SSD, power supply, power switch and processor and the problem remains.

I assume this has happened after you install Windows 7 on your system.

What about BIOS on your system? Did you get the latest version?

You can try the recovery BIOS, file name BL0160.BIO

See Instructions for BIOS recovery available below:

Allan, I have the latest BIOS.

Processor was changed between the conversion from WHS to Win7(no problems with WHS system)

Then the problem is the board itself. I would recommend checking with Intel support at the following URL:

Monday through Friday 7a.m to 5p.m PST and choose Desktop and hit Submit button.
